Patriots should be banned from the Super Bowl

An anonymous Twin Cities-area Vikings fan, who won two tickets in a charity raffle, chose to give them to someone who'd have more fun cheering on a favorite team after Philadelphia dashed Minnesota's hope of a home field Super Bowl appearance.

Super Bowl LII's matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots will serve as a rematch of arguably the most notable National Football League game ever played in Jacksonville.

Again, while I understand that point of view/opinion, I saw something in last year's Super Bowl that amazed me.

The G-Men have hoisted four Lombardi Trophies during the Super Bowl era.

For more context, SB Nation's Jason Kirk found Brady by himself, has as much Super Bowl experience as the Philadelphia Eagles' roster combined.

"James (White) didn't show me nothing I haven't seen him do", Patriots running back Brandon Bolden said. The attention to detail is unbelievable and we go into a game feeling 100 percent confident because of our staff and the work and long hours that they put in to get the game plan to us so that we can go out and execute.

The Patriots were introduced first with star quarterback Tom Brady taking the lead.

"The underdog has nothing to lose here, the expectations are less and I really like where the Eagles are right now in terms of progression of overcoming adversity, embracing challenges, belief in themselves but most importantly in key moments".

White is just one of the many Patriots running backs who can be called upon in any game. Only once in Super Bowl history has the MVP come from a losing team.

"It's a memory that you'll never get back".

"It has nothing to do with who you are affiliated with, if you're [Tom] Brady or any of the Eagles players, it's the same situation", said Clayton. "You have to give credit to that organization". Even looking at the AFC title game, Jacksonville made Brady uncomfortable in the first half, then didn't at all in the fourth quarter, leading to their eventual demise.

Lamb: "They just make great adjustments. That's one of the strengths of their club".

Nobody has more to gain from the result of Sunday's Super Bowl than Nick Foles. The Eagles reached the Super Bowl after the 1980 and 2004 seasons but were defeated by the Oakland Raiders and Patriots, respectively.

Yet Elliott, who was 26 of 31 on field goals in the regular season, says he hasn't approached Gostkowski for advice on what it's like to kick on the NFL's biggest stage.

"I hadn't really been exposed to it much in my career as a coach or player", Pederson said. "It's a very talented football team".

Harbaugh has been the coach of the Ravens for the past 10 seasons.

"We knew we couldn't afford Super Bowl tickets", said the O'Donnell family of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. "These two teams have done that". So Tom knows there are underdogs in the Super Bowl, but how big of an underdog, in your opinion, are the Eagles and is that warranted when you look at it? Specifically, he was asked if they should draft a quarterback, and he quipped, "You want me to ask Pat Shurmur?" The teams are different, the venues are different, the matchups are different and so, the road that the team has traveled to get here is different, as is the road that your opponent has traveled.

In addition, it certainly helps to play the quarterback position. "Really, we've been given the short end of the stick the entire year".
